Huge news this weekend straight from the one and only David Brevik. On a Twitter post today, Brevik revealed this…
For 20 years, Diablo-like games have evolved & surprised us. I'm proud to be the adviser for the game that pushes this genre to new heights. pic.twitter.com/LIT3i0UwJv

So there you have it. A new game is in the works, whether it’s actually a Diablo game remains to be seen. In the picture posted by David, we see the constellation of Libra. Reading the text, it doesn’t sounds like it has anything to do with current Diablo games, the constellation of Libra is intriguing however, and it could simply be a reference to the month of November when, according to Wikipedia, “the Sun appears in the constellation Libra from October 31 to November 22”. This covers the time of BlizzCon so it sounds like there will be some kind announcement.

I will say that I would be excited to see Brevik back at Blizzard in some capacity. If there’s one man who can help Blizzard recreate the magic of the first two Diablo games it’s Brevik.
Brevik had always said he wouldn’t discount a move back to Blizzard but he had settled in San Francisco and didn’t want to move to Irvine. By taking on an “advisor” role, he can work remotely.
Both David Brevik and Bill Roper recently dropped into Blizzard HQ which we speculated would be to record video footage for the Diablo anniversary event at BlizzCon. It now appears that David may have been there for more than a quick video shoot.
Ok guys, get to work on your theories on what this means for Diablo and a possible new game.
Thanks to Moshy for the heads-up in the forums.
